Rep. Kevin Cramer (R-ND) knocked the “poorly-dressed” women of the House Democrats who wore white pantsuits to President Donald Trump’s address to a joint session of Congress Tuesday night, according to Politico.

Cramer brought up the event during a radio town hall address on Wednesday, according to the site. A constituent said Democrats should work with President Trump, even though Republicans did not work with President Barack Obama when he was in office.

The congressman reportedly agreed that there are many issues that the two parties can agree on and that they should work together on, but then brought up the female House Democrats choice of attire for the address, according to Politico. He called it a “disease” that they would wear white pantsuits in order to support former Democratic Presidential nominee Hilary Clinton.

“But by the way, did you notice how poorly several of them were dressed as well?” he asked, according to the report. “It is a syndrome. There is no question, there is a disease associated with the notion that a bunch of women would wear bad-looking white pantsuits in solidarity with Hillary Clinton to celebrate her loss. You cannot get that weird.”

But, the women were not wearing white to support Clinton, according to their social media posts before the event, but to pay homage to the suffragette movement that paved the way for women to vote. The suffragettes often wore white or purple to represent their cause. Their social media posts made no mentions of pantsuits.

Congressman Cramer’s office did not immediately respond to request for comment.

    Are they deliberately being as toxic to women as possible?

    Ever since they elected a rapist I guess now they all think they can cut loose and say all the misogynistic crap that comes into their little tiny minds.

    No doubt his idea of “well-dressed” would be more sequins and cleavage.

  4. They might as well have been no-shows.

  5. I hate to admit it, but Congressweasel Kramer is one dapper dude. Check out those 12-pack abs…

    He could give Alt-President Bannon a run for his money in the style department.

    I think he also just groped the woman behind him.
